Highland Mills - Ever wonder about some of that “stuff” hiding in your closet, your attic or your basement? What’s its history? What is it worth? Now is your chance to find out. The Woodbury Historical Society will once again host its popular “Antiques Appraisal” on Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Senior Center/Public Library on Route 105 (Highland Road) in Highland Mills. Professional appraisers from William J. Jenack Estate Auctioneers and Appraisers of Chester ( will be on hand to assess the value of family heirlooms, antiques, dolls, and other curious items (except coins and stamps). The day will start at 11:30 a.m. with a talk by Bill Jenack on what is “hot” in collectibles. From noon until 4 p.m., appraisals will be done for a fee of $5 per item ($4 for Woodbury Historical Society members). Proceeds will go toward the Kirk Memorial Scholarship Fund which recognizes a graduating high school senior from Woodbury each June. The public is invited and admission is free.
